Cambridge Big Data announced

last modified Mar 26, 2014 03:48 PM
Researchers across the University who work in the emerging field of Big Data have come together to form a new strategic research initiative.

With a membership spanning disciplines as diverse as Astrophysics, Law and Education, the new initiative has been supported by the University with an award of funding for three years.

The Digital Humanities Network has been involved in supporting the development of Cambridge Big Data for much of the past year, and the DH Network Co-ordinator, Dr Anne Alexander is helping to lead CBD's work in relation to the ethics and politics of Big Data.

The DH Network has already collaborated with CBD in organising a public seminar with Kenneth Cukier, Data Editor of the Economist, and is in discussions with CBD colleagues about future co-organised events.

Find out more on the Cambridge Big Data website.

We are a network of researchers at the University of Cambridge who are interested in how the use of digital tools is transforming scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. This transformation spans both the content and practice of humanities research, as the diffusion of digital technologies opens up new fields of study and generates research questions which breach traditional disciplinary boundaries.
